Haunted Week: Trick or Treated

{This Girl Reads}


I mention a lot that I was surprised by a book. It usually is positive but sometimes... book's can be too.

 I just got this book on a whim. I didn't even know what the summary was. I just got it based on the fact that it had a ghost on the cover which I needed for a challenge on Goodreads. I ended up being thrilled with my pick. I need to get books on a whim more often after this.
 I did not know what to expect for this book. I didn't have an inkling of how it really was going to end. I completely loved the guy main character who could have been a real jerk if the author wanted him to be.
I did not realize that this book was going to talk about God. It's not a major thing but it's a good part of the book. How the main character doesn't understand why God doesn't fix everything if he could. It all had to do with homeless shelters and him becoming a better person. It was a good surprise.
 I didn't realize how much I would cringe with this book. Not only that but the whole story and the characters just didn't do it for me. I knew it was about a kid who broke his bones on purpose but I just thought it wasn't so bad and I could handle it. It was too dark even for me!
A book that has a setting in such old times wouldn't usually get me up and thrilled to read it. I was alright with reading it but I wasn't as thrilled as I would be when I got into the book which kept my attention all the way through. This book was genius.

  1. A book about someone who breaks their own bones! YIKES! Your brave for even picking it up. I could never read something like that! 8th Grade Super Hero sounds like a good one to me =) Also, I love the cover of Blink Once.
